At Runners Roost, the staff members don’t just outfit athletes with shoes in the right sizes—they make sure the footwear matches each wearer’s individual needs with a thorough gait-and-arch analysis. As discussed during an interview with Colorado and Company, the staff records video of clients’ feet as they jog on a treadmill, then examines still frames to assess whether the shoes are offering proper support. With this method, customers can find the ideal footwear from brands such as New Balance, Saucony, and Nike for both women and men.
Channeling wisdom collected over the company’s 35 years in business, the pros at Runners Roost’s numerous Colorado locations also outfit athletes with accessories and sweat-wicking apparel perfect for triathlons over hot coals. In addition to supporting feet, Runners Roost has supported the local community throughout the years by sponsoring high-school cross-country and track meets, marathons, and other events.
